Drag and Drop Listeners Extension Points

Identifier:
org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.common.ui.services.dnd.dragDropListenerProviders

Description:
This extension point is used to register drag source and drop target listeners against element types within view parts.This extension point facilitates the configuration of providers for the drag/drop listener service (org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.common.ui.services.dnd.core.DragDropListenerService). The providers register listeners for drag and drop operations on specific element types within view parts.
